One Lovely Blog Award!


I have been really inspired with my blogging since taking up the Blogging 101 Challenge this September, it has been like a second wind! I think I have been stretched in my writing and it has been really lovely to see how things have changed in such a short space of time.  I have gained new followers and received more comments from readers, which has been such a buzz!

So it was such a wonderful surprise to receive Saana’s comment yesterday afternoon, saying she had nominated me for the ‘One Lovely Blog Award.’  Saturday 4th October marked my first anniversary as a blogger, a milestone I was so pleased with on a personal level as I had no idea I would have lasted a year when I first started.  It’s a wonderful way to encourage someone who is new in blogging and its has made my day today:-)

The One Lovely Blog Award nominations are chosen by fellow bloggers for those newer or up-and-coming bloggers. The goal is to help give recognition and to also help the new blogger reach more viewers. It also recognizes blogs that are considered to be “lovely” by the fellow-blogger who chose them. This award acknowledges bloggers who share their story or thoughts in a beautiful manner to connect with their viewers and followers. In order to “accept” the award the nominated blogger must follow several guidelines.
